McCaskill: Trump budget slashes Medicaid by $1.4 trillion to fund tax breaks for the ultra-wealthy

(From Sen. Claie McCaskill, D-MO)

Millions of Americans, including more than a million Missourians, voted for President Trump because they believed he’d make their lives better.

We all just got a look at President Trump’s proposed budget – and it proves that he has no intention of living up to that promise.

This budget slashes Medicaid funding by more than $1.4 trillion and balloons the federal deficit in order to fund a tax break for the ultra-wealthy.

Seriously?! I've talked to struggling Missourians who depend on the programs that President Trump’s budget eradicates. This budget will destroy families’ lives.

I’m going to keep fighting for our most vulnerable, for our healthcare and for what’s right, no matter what. Really grateful to have you by my side through it all.

Go ahead and keep fighting against immigration policies so we can have more MS13 gang members, rapist and terrorists infiltrate our country.
Also, thanks for continuing to abort human beings.

Keep telling us what Donald Trump is doing so you can take the focus off the fact that the Democratic Party is doing absolutely nothing to help out.
The entire group should be fired. People are sick of the blame game.
It's time you all get back to work and do what's best for the people and this country.

She voted to support late term abortion. She is an accomplice to murder. What an evil witch.

Bring in more of the Greitens republican family value types! They can make sure the tax breaks go to the wealthy, education gets cut to the bone, corporations get massive tax breaks and can pollute land, air and water freely and the rednecks can shoot at stuff and blow it up! That is if they can get out of the indictments and impeachment proceedings.
